Complaint: One star is too much for this agency. Do NOT sign a contract with Bernie Cobb Jr. He is unprofessional, not ethical, manipulative and threatening. I signed a contract with him for the sale of my deceased mothers home back in Sept.. I was somewhat ignorant and didn’t think to pay attention to how long the contract was but it is a year. He talked me into a horrible sale and did not have my best interest. The sale fell thru the night before closing. After wasting 3 months trying to sell the home I asked him to take it off the market and cancel the listing while I took a break and made some upgrades to the home. 2 months later comes to find out he never cancelled my listing as asked to do so. He has it temporarily no showings which made sense bc I did have ppl wandering around the house asking questions. When confronted he got very confrontational but we talked and I agreed to let him remarket the property. Days later we didn’t see eye to eye on anything. Let me warn you Bernie will try to get you to sell your house at the lowest price for a quick sale. He will even purposely not show you the higher comps so you think your property is worth lower than what it actually is. He wants a fast sale and onto the next he doesn’t care about the few thousand more he could make selling it competitively. So then I asked him to cancel my listing bc we didn’t see eye to eye and he refused and threatened I either buy him out paying full commission to him or the house sits until his contract expires in 6 months. He said that was my choice. He also refused to give me back my keys so I had to have locks changed. He sent me harassing text after harassing texts trying to manipulate me into using him. I spoke with his broker and he is just as unprofessional and offered me another agent in the office so Bernie and that agent can split the commission. I want nothing to do with the corrupt agency and yes corrupt. They are all about making money off you and don’t let them fool you into thinking they are for you. I’m going to seek legal action to get out of this terrible situation.
